Rob Halford of Judas Priest’s new autobiography promises a “compelling, heartfelt and honest look” at the metal musician’s life and struggles

Rob Halford of Judas Priest has been teasing an autobiography for years, and now, he’s ready to officially tell his story. Halford will release his autobiography, “Confess,” on Sept. 29 via Hachette Books.

A description for the book reads, “Halford has always subverted the norm, and “Confess” will offer readers a compelling, heartfelt and honest look at the struggles Rob has faced with addiction and his sexuality as well as exploring his music and his many brushes with controversy.”

The about the author section of “Confess” describes Halford as “the lead vocalist for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Judas Priest, known for his signature wide-ranging voice and his leather-and-studs image, which became hallmarks of the genre. He came out in 1998 and has since spoken out about discrimination and advocated for a number of LGBT issues.”

Halford is publishing “Confess” in conjunction with Judas Priest’s 50th anniversary, which happens this year. He describes the release of “Confess,” which marks his first autobiography, as “exciting, fun, disturbing, and terrifying.”

Halford wrote “Confess” with Ian Gittins, who was the co-writer of “The Heroin Diaries” from Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue.

“Confess” may be pre-ordered on Amazon here.
